Re: HDMI and Audio
"I know it was in Ubuntu 18.04 and Debian 9 both of which fail at any kind of auto detect (I have a whole bunch of scripts to swap stuff around from the shell). Recent install of Ubuntu 19.06 seemed a bit better, but not great."
It's only 2020, no need to laugh because there are still so many distros having problems with sound and video cards. Just use the CLI and be done with out, why bother with niggly things like sound and resolution .... <snark>
